Thanks for the resources on your website. I have included the James Hardie Kick-out detail to add to your library.
I'm getting some serious push-back from roofers and builders who don't want to put a dimes worth of tin up to potentially save thousands of dollars.

I love this detail because they have included the need for the self adhering membrane to be in behind the actual lower roof to wall connection as well as felt and/or roofing felt along the roof deck an up the vertical wall. And all of this comes before the installation of the step flashing and roofing material. This is a fail-safe trouble free installation that if followed, it would make this website completely unnecessary. But to do this, it will require roofers and builders to adopt a new mentality of putting “a dimes worth of tin up to potentially save thousands of dollars!” Make it a great day!
